PASADENA. May 7.—(Regular Cor
respondence.) The taking of the school
census by Charles D. Tyng has estab
lished the opinion in the minds of some
that the date for the census should be
changed. It is now taken between
April 15th and SOt'h. Mr. Tyng says
that he found many people had already
left for the beaches and other summer
resorts. During the Fiesta week many
families had temporarily removed to
Los Angeles. About/ this time eastern
people who have their children in
school through the winter have gone
cast. These things make the number
of children accounted for less than the
actual number attending school during
the year. Owing to the fact that the
state law allows appropriations for
school expenses according to the num
ber of scholars, this tends to' put the
city to expense. The census taker thinks,
therefore, that the census had better
be taken between April Ist and 15th of
each year. His report is as follows:
Number of white children between
5 and 17 years of age—Boys, 1129; girls,
1200; total,'" 2329.
Number cf negro children between
5 and 17 years of age—Boys, 22; girls, 24;
total. 46.
Totat number of census children be
tween 5 and 17, 2375.
Number of children under s—White,
926; negro, 29; total, 955.
Number of census children who have
attended public school at any time dur
ing the year, 1884.
Number who have attended private
but not public school, 160.
Number who have not attended any
school, 331.
Total number of children under 17,
3330. Of these 3193 are native born and
137 foreign born.
E. Morrison, formerly of tihs city.
• where he was employed by Mr. Green,
a guest of Hotel Green, as valet, was
arrested in Los Angeles yesterday af
ternoon for obtaining money under false
pretenses. Morrison's credit being good
on the reputation of his employer, he
went to George W. Collins, the Colorado
street jeweler, day before yesterday,
and ran up a bill for a watch, pin, nnd
other items, to the tune of nearly $40.
Mr. Collins later found that Morrison
had been discharged nearly a month
ago. He then swore out the warrant
and it was served in- Los Angeles. Mor
rison was a little tipsy and expressed
himself as much surprised by the ac
cusation. He said that Justice Morri
son was a relative of his and would
clear him. While they were in the court
room the man jumped for the door and
was making off at a lively rate, when
Deputy Wallis collared and handcuffed
•him, with the assistance of Los Angeles
officers. Justice Morrison disclaimed
any relationship to R. Morrison and the
latteT was brought back to Pasadena,
where he gathered together enough
money to pay Mr. Collls and the court
costs. He was then released.

Says So
And everybody isn't mistaken. They
say—that you can go on trying doctors
and patent medicines for your chronic
trouble until doomsday and you will end
up where you start:d or worse off, and
your faith in doctors and medicines is
gone too. You can'l cure chronic disease
in that way, and the people are finding It
out. The cure of chronic disease is an
easy task for the English and German
expert specialists in the Byrne building.
They treat nothing but chronic diseases,
and the big advantage to sufferers is tho
privilege of consulting them without cost.
Go and talk with them before you are
beyond help.

To the Public: I take this means of ex-
P/eMlng; my thanks to Dr. Wong Him of,
W9 Upper Main street for having cured me
or kidney and stomach trouble which
caused me great prostration. I was unable
to get a good night's sleep for about three
years, and acting under the advice of the
best doctors of Chicago, I came here to get'
well on the climate, but kept getting grad
ually worse, until I was told to try Dr.
Wong Him, and by the aid ot his wonder
ful life-giving herbs 1 can say that in three
months' time 1 am now a new woman and
feel stronger than I ever did. Any person
wishing me to certify this can find me.

To the Public: I take pleasure in tes
tifying to my marvelous recovery under
the treatment of Dr. Wong Hira of 63S
Upper Main street. Los Angeles, from a
number of stubborn ailments, among
which were chronic siekheadaches, dys-j
pepsia and kindred stomach troubles,
heart affection and kidney disease.
But what I consider this physician excelled
In, so far as my case is concerned, was In
the restoration of my eye service. Astigma
tism, coupled with other disorders, was my
affliction in this respect, and, although a
number of well-known skilled oculists in
some of the larger cities of this country
advised me I should always have to de-,
peitd upon glasses and receive but poor ser
vice even then. Dr. Wong Him's remedies
have enabled me to abandon totally the use
of any artificial help to sight, and my eyes
continue to give such service, both for
near work and distant, as is truly wonder
ful. To the skill and remedies of the phy
sician named can alone be attributed a rev
olution in my physical condition through
out that puzzles those who knew of the
"incurable" character of mv afflictions.
Respectfully, G. L. PLOWMAN.
